2 Quick HInts

by Brendon on September 19, 2005

Howdy. I’ve come to the realisation that I don’t use my error pages effectively. I’ve just quickly edited a page on our eczema web site to reflect better information.
We can make it a whole lot better than that of course, but with some time pressures at the moment I’ll just use it as an example.
Instead of saying “Page Not Found” why not add a little more information to direct the customer where you want them to go? It’s quick and easy to do.
Tip # 2:
On that error page if you look at the address bar you’ll see a little bottle of oil and cream. The favicon was created in Photoshop (click here for the plugin to do it with) and simply added top the root directory of the site as favicon.ico.
